I would say that it is going to have to be a fuel problem since you don't have any codes. The fuel pump relay could be your problem. Did you check the fuel pressure when it would not start? Or was it a time that the caravan would not start and run? It sounds like a fuel pump relay to me.

check the condition of the key battery as it may be low in cold weather and not communicating properly with the immobiliser.. I suggest this because batteries generally fail more often in cold weather compared to warmer climates.

Hi tinkerbel925

Have you tried scanning it with a scan tool? If this much is going wrong there should be a check engine light on. This will tell you what is making your van do all that crazy stuff.

check your vans computer for codes. grab a pencil and paper. insert ignition key.

do the following; off-on, off-on, off-on. codes will flash out on the check engine light in pairs of numbers, 5-5 being the end of the test. write those numbers down and report back so that we may have a better idea of your vans problem

Any chance you are out of gas?

I have a 2006 dodge grand caravan, when the car is in driveway idling the car wont heat up but as soon as you start driving the car, the car heats up normally. Should i replace the thermostat or is it...


The reason for replacing the thermostat is improper cooling - not heating. The purpose of the thermostat is to shut off the flow of coolant through the engine allowing the temperature to build. When it reaches the temperature it wants the thermostat opens and allows coolant to flow to maintain the proper temp. Dodge Caravans have a track record for maintaining a low temperature until the engine is at higher rpm. While it is inconvenient in cold weather it it not bad. However, you want to check that your radiator fan is shutting off when it is cold. A fan that is staying on when it shouldn't could cause the temp to stay cooler.
